Innocence Project: Memory Girls

Memory Girls belong to the indie Let’s Be Adult label, and I can’t think of a more misleading label name for this band to be associated with. There is nothing “adult” about Memory Girl’s debut tracks “Our Freedom, Our Darkness” and “Lazy Blues.” This is the stuff of childhood naivety, skippy indie-pop perfect for soundtracking the construction of a treehouse on a clear day. “Our Freedom” in particular shines by threading upbeat vocals through absolutely warm guitar playing. To compare them to another group (the classic fallback!), imagine a more twee Best Coast. For when being a mature individual feels like a total drag during the warmer months, Memory Girls got you’re back. Listen here.
